The Store on the Movie

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Last week we went to a small gathering at the bastard store here in Milan. The Launch Party #29 has been perhaps the biggest edition of a recurring event that our friends at COMVERT organize to present their new products (which is mostly clothing, but they are also into delicious food…). It’s great to watch few videos showing how the space we have designed few years ago looks like today.

A fistful of links

Friday, December 5th, 2008

During the weeks that followed ONLYWOOD, some attention was raised on COMVERT HQ. Curious people started to search, ask, talk and write about the project… This is a good thing for studiometrico, Bastard, Atelier LC and specially for Comvert, a fantastic company and an unforgettable client who’s kicking it hard in this ‘supposedly’ difficult moment. The web has been the most generous and reactive among all the media. If you want to know our opinion about the things that have been written… Read the rest of this entry »

Sk8 Session @ COMVERT HQ

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Only 48 hours after the successful ONLYWOOD (the COMVERT Headquarter Grand Opening Party) we went back to Casacomvert for the first skate-session after the completion of the Bastard Bowl, the first skateable spaceship ever landed on earth. It was not surprising to find out that there was a martian skating upthere!

comvert-logo-2

We are finally able to post an ‘almost’ complete set of pictures and drawings concerning a project that has kept us busy for more than one year: The new home of Comvert s.r.l, the italian clothing company that produces and distributes Bastard. Few years ago Comvert asked studiometrico to look for a location for its new headquarter in Milan; the place should have been large enough to host offices for 15-20 people, services, a big storage for their products and an indoor skatebowl for employees, team riders and friends. In spring 2005 we eventually found a Cinema theater from the 50′s that really suited Comvert needs and few months ago – after the conclusion of the refurbishment works – the company has moved into its new home: Casacomvert!

Refurbishing a cinema theater in milan – 3

Monday, June 18th, 2007

We publish here some new pictures showing progress of the Cinema Istria building site. A new structure of terraced platforms cladded with larch wood panels will soon host the headquarter office spaces. The old floor of the mezzanine has been sanded, old paint has been removed and the pine planks have been taken to life again. Electrical, heating and cooling installations are almost completed and soon furnitures and finishings will complete the works. We look forward to see (and show) the end of it!

Refurbishing a cinema theater in milan – 2

Monday, April 30th, 2007

After a couple of months of site works we publish here few pictures of the most ambitious of our current projects: converting a 1.300 sqm Cinema Theater into an unconventional office space for a young Milan-based clothing company. Architecture works and installations should be concluded within a month and the new headquarter should be available for its inhabitants by the summer. We’ll be able to tell and show more about this project as the building site progress.
